English Riveria Wheel lights up for Manchester

(Last Updated On: May 24, 2017)

The English Riviera wheel in Torquay was lit up in red, white and blue last night, 23rd May following the terrorist attack in Manchester on Monday night.

The wheel also read ‘Manchester stay strong’. The lights could be seen across the bay and stayed on throughout the evening.

The wheel, at nearly 60 metres high, is taller than Nelson’s Column and provides breathtaking 360 degree views across the Bay. The wheel returned to Torquay in April and will be here until Saturday 28th October.
